    Robert Fagles brings the energy of contemporary language of this 2,700-year-old epic, while maintaining the drive and metric music of Homer's poetry, as well as the impact and nuance of Homer's mesmerizing repeated phrases.

    As a scholar, Fagles praises Homer's directness and simplicity, the breadth of his imagination, and the power of his song. As a translator, he brilliantly captures these very qualities.

    Amazon Customer says: "Outstanding in every way"
    "abridged or unabridge...that is the question?"
    Overall

    I rented this as an unabridge book for my daughter who is studying 'The Iliad'. and she found out it has skipped many pages. now I look it up and it says abridge! Why would you audio this book as abridged?So many students read this and it is so helpful to have a complete book!
